I hope you all have a nice, pleasant weekend. I'll be spending some time with my family and my precious Daddy on Father's Day. I'm so grateful for all of the wonderful Fathers in my family. Both of my Grandfather's are gone; however, their sweet memories remain with us.

Over the weekend, we're expecting a mix of sunshine and rain here in the Midwest. Oh, how I pray we get some much needed rain. We haven't had any for quite some time and the grass and flowers are beginning to show it, along with our farm crops that could use some rain to help them grow during this crucial early growing stage. However, if it doesn't rain... on a brighter note, we might get in a few rounds of corn hole!

As for what's on TV... in addition to the great Marathons, I'm really looking forward to all of the new movies this weekend... The Warrant, Love Under the Olive Tree, and Mechanics of Love! Hope you enjoy them all, too!

(*Side Note: The premiere date for the next new movie, "Midway to Love," has been moved up to Friday, June 26th. Not sure why, but I'll have a reminder later this week!)

May you all have a wonderful
First Official Weekend of Summer!

Happy Father's Day
to All of the Daddy's who visit here!

Blessings, Everyone! Net





  1. Hard to believe we're finally getting Love Under The Olive Tree.

    I'm so excited!

  2. I'm visiting my Father this weekend, Net. It's been months since our family has been able to visit. We're meeting right after church and we hope to be outside. It's fairly dry at our home too. Can I just hope it doesn't rain for a few hours in the afternoon?

  3. Hi Net! I didn't watch this movie, but some of my family members did and they noticed that the side characters were gay evem though ut was not openly stated. They said they felt it was obvious though. Just a heads up!

    1. I appreciate you sharing this, as I was also very disappointed to see this added in this movie. It was completely unnecessary to the story.

      Even though it was subtle, it was there, and it ruined the enjoyment of the movie - for me and my family.

  4. Hallmark will move heaven and earth to make sure Candace Cameron Bure Christmas movie gets made for 2020. Her holiday movies have garnered network-high ratings too many times not to. Lacey Chabert, Danica McKellar, Jen Lilley, Erin Krakow & Nikki DeLoach also shoe-ins.

  5. Love Under the Olive Tree had a very obvious side gay plot. Lots of shared looks, comments about how he's not dating HER and they were on a date at the end. Just for anyone who would like to know.

    1. I don't know where to put this for all to see...but I was sickened that there was a gay relationship obviously shown on Love Under the Olive Tree. It makes me once again wonder how long I'll stay with Hallmark if this continures.

    2. Hi Judy! Thank you for sharing your opinion. I felt the same way you did, and I know many others here agree. This subject was very upsetting for me and my family. We will not be watching this movie again and we will be most careful of what we watch in the future on Hallmark. It is very sad.

      In case you're interested, a few others shared your opinion here:

      You may want to check back here in the future after a new movie premieres to see if there is more content like this.

      Blessings to you! Net

  6. Net, could you please address all the rumors of Hallmark filming again. Would love to know this is happening but concerned for the safety of everyone. Thank you!

    1. Hello kitkat! I sure can address it... the rumors are all 100% true!

      Little by little, some Hallmark Stars, directors, etc... have been sharing on social media they are, indeed, going back to filming - including: Alicia Witt, Andrew Walker, Candace Cameron Bure, Paul Campbell, Kimberley Sustad, and more! Plus, "When Calls the Heart" stars are getting ready too!

      There's a great article at yvrshoots - that explains how "Any cast, creators or crew from outside Canada will need to do the government-mandated 14-day quarantine before heading to set."

      The article also shares several TV movies that are currently being filmed or going into production soon:

      For Better or Worse,

      Christmas Forgiveness,

      Kite Festival of Love,

      Wedding Every Weekend,

      Beverly Hills Wedding,

      My One True Love,

      and Destination Wedding.

      At this point, we don't know if they will all end up on Hallmark, but I know one or two are already definite!

      I think they are doing their best to keep everyone safe and healthy during this process. It's not an easy time for any of us, but I'm sure the actors, directors and crew are eager to get back to work.

  7. Thanks Net! Appreciate this info.

  8. I can see why Hallmark didn’t play Love Under the Olive Tree last Fall... very boring, same old storyline, the characters did not click and then the gay characters-NOT family friendly. It was hard to watch and get into. Don’t plan to watch again. If this is how Hallmark is going to be, my family will not be watching!!! Thanks Net for the heads up had to do a lot of fast forwarding but oh well it wasn’t good anyway!

    1. Yes! The actors had no chemistry. It was awful

  9. A Hallmark-style Fall Romance: A career oriented literary agent returns to her hometown after her father’s heart attack and tries to save their cranberry farm with the help of a handsome local chef.

    It’s FALLING FOR VERMONT in Massachusetts cranberry country!
    Writer Statement:

    I wrote this as a TV Hallmark-style fall romance. I wanted to pick a unique setting that has not been done before. I have a love for southern Massachusetts and Cape Cod, so I chose the setting of the romance to be in a small town in the cranberry mecca of the world. The setting in the cranberry world makes for a unique backdrop and has not been done in a Hallmark movie before.

  10. Love Ever Movies

    Hallmark filming resume in Vancouver as planned, as felt optimistic. Projects currently filming—KITE FESTIVAL OF LOVE w/ Jessica Lowndes moved to next week—do have all-Canadian casts, but we'll see American-based actors
